The genetics revolution is already reshaping healthcare—and most people see in it the potential for healthier children, healthier adults, and less disease.  Dr. Jamie Metzl argues that the same technology making progress possible has the potential to saddle the world with a complex array of thorny ethical questions that will affect everything from human sexual reproduction to national security.

Metzl is a technology and healthcare futurist, geopolitical expert, novelist, entrepreneur, media commentator, and Senior Fellow of the Atlantic Council.  He was appointed to the World Health Organization expert advisory committee on developing global standards for the governance and oversight of human genome editing in 2019.  He currently serves on the Advisory Council to Walmart’s Future of Retail Policy Lab and is a faculty member for Singularity University’s Exponential Medicine conference.  His most recent book is “Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity.”
